Vanderbilt beats Georgia Tech, or Georgia Tech beats itself.

Good morning.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

We’re 90 days away from Vanderbilt football’s season opener against ETSU, and there’s currently no 90 on the roster — probably because freshmen haven’t been assigned numbers yet and last year’s #90, defensive lineman Cameron Tidd, has graduated.

And on Saturday night, Vanderbilt beat Atlanta 4-3 to advance to the regional final, where they’ll play either Atlanta (again) or Indiana State at 8 PM CT tonight. This was mostly a comedy of errors, with all four Vanderbilt runs being unearned off Atlanta starter Marquis Grissom Jr. (yeah, we’re old), though Jack Leiter did strike out 11 batters in six innings of work and only allowed a solo homer. As of now, ESPN’s web site just says tonight’s game will be on ESPN3. Prior to that, Atlanta and Indiana State will play at 2 PM CT, also on ESPN3.

Your guide to today’s regional action outside of Nashville. In every case, the first game is an elimination game, and the second game is the regional final with the winner of the first game playing the 2-0 team.
